I don't think I will every tire of this particular pattern. It is so simple to knit but it has enough interest to keep you captivated. I may, one day, even knit it in solid yarns to see whether that draws me on as much as the long colour changes do.
This shawl is larger than the last one I knit. I think my knitting has become looser, this meant that instead of the purely grey edging, I had to use pink yarn for the last repeat of the border pattern. I think it looks fine.
I used my new tripod for taking these photos and it makes a massive difference to the stability of the shots. I feel much less hassled, because I know the tripod won't fall over when I press the button to start the timer. As this is a full sized tripod I can position it anywhere in the garden rather than just standing by the table by the Summer house. This gives me greater flexibility on the time of day I can take photographs outdoors. My Gorillapod is great for taking out and about, but this big tripod is going to be so useful at home.
Having one shawl in warm tones and one is cooler tones will hopefully mean I can wear one version of this shawl, on most occasions. I really do love the semi-circular shape so much.
I mean, what's not to like?
